I just emailed the author.  Maybe we could earmark contributions for
"Cygwin the Hippo" and if we hit $300 we'd get a new character.

Or, maybe it would be better to see how much interest there is here

Anyone else interested?  My son is a graphic artist so, besides being a
big fan of the strip, I'm really interested in helping this guy out.
